MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center is seeking a full-time Neonatal Nurse Practitioner to join our level III, newly renovated, 23-bed, single-room Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

We are an interprofessional team with the goal of providing quality and empathetic care to our premature and sick newborns, and their families. We have partnered for over 10 years with the March of Dimes, implementing the only fully staffed MoD NICU Family Support program in Maryland. We strive to use innovative and evidence-based approaches to healthcare delivery, and we benchmark our outcomes with the Vermont Oxford Network database. The nurse practitioner is pivotal in developing these programs as well as the daily the healthcare plan with the neonatologist, nursing, social services, and families. Some examples of QI initiatives are: Golden Hour, infant driven feeding, bereavement, transport program, neonatal abstinence bundle, and PICL insertion and maintenance bundles.

Our staffing goal is to expand to include 6 full time nurse practitioners (one position may be shared), in addition to four full time neonatologists to allow for flexibility for leave, vacation, and off-service time to develop and implement quality improvement projects. A full-time schedule includes 36 hours a week, typically three (3) 12-hour shifts (other options may be considered). Schedule can include all night-shifts if preferred, or a combination of night-shift and day/evening shifts. Weekend and holiday shift requirements are shared fairly among the group.

In addition to providing medical care in the NICU, nurse practitioners attend high-risk deliveries, independently perform neonatal resuscitation, stabilize and initiate management of premature and/or ill newborns including initial intubation, ventilation, and insertion of umbilical lines.

If you can see yourself as part of our team, consider spending a share day with us to see how we work and experience our unit. Please also inquire about our RN to NNP program for succession planning.
